    Pros

    Nice environment as far as buildings/location at the Austin campus. Most people were great, worked hard and very loyal

    Cons

    NEVER see this company as an advancement in a career and NEVER count on it for long term stability. Your best off looking for other work if you are still employed and leave on your own terms because the next layoff is ticking closer.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    They would not take it even if given. Rory Read needs to go for starters!

    Intense, but good if you like a startup feeling in an established public company.

    Pros

    Good if you want to design microprocessors and graphics processing units (cpus and gpus), cmos circuits and microprocessor architecture. Design teams are big and spread all over the world. A lot of teleconference meetings and possibly some travel involved.

    Cons

    Projects can be too long (3-5 years) which makes them prone to a higher level of uncertainty on their completion (market changes, technology changes, management changes, etc). You are expected to be able to log in from home or while on the road. People tend to put in long hours including and it is not uncommon to receive and send email 24/7. Design teams are all over the country and world therefore there is a need to have teleconference meetings at odd times which could be very early, very late, or during lunch time. Has very similar performance policies as Intel: top 10% employees get treated like kings, bottom 10% employees get laid off in the next cost cutting round, the other 80% get below expectation reviews during tough times and average reviews during good times.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Management should be honest during performance reviews and not use them as "motivational tools". It is not fair on hard working employees and it takes a big toll on company morale.
